I am an enthousiast new IPE user for 2 weeks now. I work mainly on Windows
NT and partially on Linux. I give my first questions:

   Could it be possible to have a combined "new view,new layer" command
   which keep the previous view configuration in term of layers. Most of
   the time a presentation is made by addition of one layer to the previous
   view and presently I have to deselect each time the whole set of
   unwanted layers. This new command could save a lot of time.
   Could it be also possible to resize on the fly the editor box width.
   Presently we have to chose the width at box creation and to make text
   copy, box erase, box creation, text paste...  if the visual result is
   not satisfactory. The mode of dilatation/contraction of the whole text
   is not always good as it changes the police size.
   A last question: What about the support of METAPOST drawings in a
   similator mode to the support of LaTeX ? A METAPOST text program
   generates n postscript drawings which could be arranged on the canvas at
   will with the help of the mouse.
